Smart Connections and Setup Flexibility

Kick® EM is a unique streamlined navigation platform with a small footprint for frameless procedures. Its minimalistic design makes Kick EM portable and easy to setup. Ideal for small O.R.s or as an add-on system for easy pointer navigation with EM tracking for larger facilities. Kick EM consists of three parts: the field generator, the connection panel and the Kick monitor cart. The field generator, fixed either on a positioning plate or with a flexible arm for optimized patient setup, creates the electromagnetic field around the patient’s head. Mounted with secure hooks to the O.R. table or directly on the monitor cart, the connection panel is the interface between the tracking unit and the navigation system. A step-by-step animated workflow guides the user through system setup and ensures a smooth surgical procedure.
